«Remember Gordon Tebo back from tube031? Probably not since it was like two and a half years ago... still, Gordon offered us at the time, a nice little release called 'Adaptive Immune' and it was a conceptual EP about the human body system. Musically, it was minimal/experimental/noise at the very least.

Well be prepared now... because Gordon is back, and he's different. 'Patina Turner' - funny name for a release - is like a 360 degrees turn for Gordon, as he now enters minimal techno territory with it. But not down-to-earth minimal techno like that one coming from Germany and other european countries. No, Gordon did his own minimal techno blend, and, from Gordon's own words: «it's all got something very slightly fucked about it, almost unnoticeably.» Something unnoticeably, like the picture on the cover... And yes, it is fucked up, but in a gentle way. Gordon knows what's he's doing and what he wants, and he also threw in some ambient to boot, and the result couldn't be better: Four hypnotizing and extremely danceable tracks that have that special power to put us into 'nod mode' even if we are sat down in a comfy chair. Opener 'People Mover' couldn't have been more appropriately titled and it's the real keeper here. 'Phone Home' is also a special little gem. Braindance, people!
Best with headphones or very loud speakers. Enjoy.» - Pedro Leitão
